Practical Preservation Podcast featuring Mike O’Neill of the Gfeller Collection

On this week’s episode of the Practical Preservation Podcast, Danielle spoke with Mike O’Neill about Barry Gfeller’s photography and how it helped preserve images of Main Street America. From the National Building Museum’s website, “ Gfeller Collection: Main Street USA portrays roughly 250,000 buildings and 3,750 communities in 44 states and six Canadian provinces. Taken together, the images are a rare snapshot of late 20th-century North America.”

Mike also discussed his role in the preservation and donation of this important collection.

You can find more information about the collection at, or at the National Building Museum.
